“We had a great experience with Shane Ballard. Shane Ballard was our realtor and he was knowledgable about the properties and the resources that we would need in purchasing our land. I would definitely recommend him.”

“David Norman Realty Advisors represented our family estate sale. They handled our property in Grayson County located in the Dorchester area. The property consisted of 500 hundred acres. David and his associates handled the sale from start to finish all aspects. It consisted of three different sales. Their knowledge and skills were excellent in all phases of the sales. I will look forward to using their services and advise in the future.”

“Dear David & Shane, We would like to thank you for the care and attention you gave to our home in Cooper – for a year and a half. When it became obvious that it would not sell locally, we felt your job got much harder, and we appreciate your tenacity. We also appreciate the times your walked us through contracts, and coached us as we learned about DocuSign, and gave us helpful advice (or little pushes) all having to be done long distance. We enjoyed doing business with you!”

- Fredda and Delbert

“I approached David Norman in the spring of 2021 about listing my 165 acre hunting property out in NE Texas after a brief and very disappointing experience with a competing ranch broker. David met me at the site for a property tour a few days after my initial phone contact and we discussed market conditions and he scheduled Shane for an aerial drone photo-shoot a week later.  I made it clear to him that this listing might be a challenge to get sold as in addition to the land and hunting cabin, there was $100,000 worth of near new equipment that I wanted included in the sale somehow. Once their ad was up on the MLS, they had more showings during the first month than the competing firm had in the 4 months they had my listing!  As a result of their expert marketing and property photo’s, they were able to get me a full price offer including the equipment!  I was thoroughly satisfied with their communication during the sales process which ultimately led to a successful closing.”

“David Norman and Shane Ballard composed a very professional, thorough, marketing package for our recreational land in Lamar county in the spring of 2021. I was impressed with the knowledge and time they spent researching the area and the recommendations they made to launch the sale effort. The marketing piece led to multiple showings the first week on the market, resulting in a quick contract negotiation with a qualified buyer. I would recommend David and Shane to anyone considering a sale of their real estate.”

“David and Shane exemplified the upmost in professionalism and integrity from the beginning of their representation. They kept our Trustees informed at every stage of the transaction.

“David and Shane are exceptional in their professionalism. They helped me with clear step-by-step guidance through the whole selling process. They eased the stress of the whole experience with patience and timely updates. David and Shane were very responsive to every question no matter how small.

“Dear David and Shane.   I want to thank both of you for both your professionalism and thoroughness in representing me on the sale of my property.  Having been a Realtor myself for many years and now retired, I know the work it takes and both of you went above and beyond my expectations.  True professionals.  I would recommend you to everyone.  Thanks for getting my property sold in a reasonable time frame and for a great price.”

- Jeri Tolbert

“David and Shane conducted the sale of my farm in Hunt County quickly, professionally, and achieved a final sale price at the top of my expectations. 

Starting with a personal property inspection, David and Shane generated a detailed report which included aerial maps, physical property description, current and potential property use, identification of potential buyers, and a detailed analysis of estimated property value based upon recent sales and current market conditions. Once I approved the analysis and a sale price was agreed upon, David and Shane produced the property listing descriptions with Lands of America and MLS showing how it would be marketed. Additionally, aerial drone video was created for marketing which highlighted my property’s best features. Within days multiple offers were received exceeding my expectations and the sale process was aggressively executed.

Throughout the sale process David and Shane maintained close communication keeping me informed of every milestone and progress. As with all sales, a few bumps were encountered but David and Shane were quick and professional in resolving each.
I am pleased with the organized and methodical way they do business. I wish all agencies maintained this level of professionalism. Additionally, being from the local area and finding out we have many common friends, I feel I have not only completed a very successful sale but made new friends.”

“Shane Ballard assisted us in purchasing two pieces of property that are contiguous. Our desire was to purchase both pieces, rather than one or the other, and he gave us solid, professional direction regarding a contingency purchase that protected us all the way through to closing. His knowledge and helpfulness were apparent and appreciated.”

- Steve B.

“I have been searching for property 3 years and we recently just closed on our property/farm. My wife and I met Shane Ballard to discuss being our buying agent roughly 6 months before we made our purchase. We knew we would be looking extensively for land – like lots of land… really – and we really had to talk him out of wanting to meet us at every property (cause that’s just the kind of customer service he was wanting to give). Instead we talked him into getting us up to the minute updates on certain criteria we were looking for through email. Through that process we were able to close on a piece of property as soon as we found the one that made our hearts sing and fit our boundaries. Shane helped us through the whole process. Thank you Shane for your help and thank you Jesus for humbling us with such an honor to steward a piece of your masterpiece. “

- Nicholas B.

“Shane Ballard has been a well of information while my wife and I searched for a home. He has taken his time, been honest, fair, and went out of his way to drive with us to several potential homes. I have talked to many agents, and Shane was by far the most honest and was a wonderful person to work with. If you want somebody knowledgeable, honest, and pleasant then you should definitely give Shane a call, he was absolutely great!”

“We recently purchased property with the help of Shane Ballard. He was great to work with, very responsive and was excellent at negotiating the deal. He went above and beyond, even after the sale was completed. We would highly recommend using Shane to purchase property in North Texas.”

“We had a farm that we really loved
We’d had it for 21 years
So, when we decided it was time to sell our land
Choosing a realtor did give us some fear.
Did they have good experience, did they know how to market
Would it take long for our farm to sell
Fortunately, we picked David Norman Realty
And the process it went very well.

They did web-based marketing, with drone pictures to music
That showed off our farm, east to the west
They made it look so good that we received multiple offers
Allowing us to make the choice that was best.
Smooth and professional the sales process, easy it was
They always stayed in contact with updates
Every question they answered, and phone call returned
No matter how early or late.
We can say with all honesty that we really did choose
The right people, and to you we extend
A Thank You David and Shane for working with us
To other buyers and sellers, you we recommend!”

- Roy and Jennifer
